First up, it's good see Finders Keepers back on their feet and releasing vinyl again. This strictly limited 7" is a companion release to their eagerly awaited compilation of ‘70s Mancunian hard rock, heavy funk and hairy prog rarities entitled 'Man Chest Hair'.
What we got here are three instrumentals from Plasma, an under the radar ‘70s surf inspired hard rock outfit whose studio budget was so meager they didn't have the dough to complete the vocals before being ejected from the premises. No bad thing as it turns out because these tracks stand up well as righteous instrumentals in their own right. Both 'Hazel Time' and 'Seven Stars' are dense funk-driven hard rock-outs complete with tasteful yet not over complex arrangements, fine solo work and the kind of back to basics production values you're unlikely to hear nowadays. Kinda funky but fudgey.Flip it and 'Ectoplasm' goes big. This one sounds like an amalgamn of every hard rocking bar blues band of the mid-seventies. There's a bit of Deep Purple in there, some Led Zeppelin bits, Who bits, Cream bits...it's all here. This one definitely would have benefited from a some vocalising but again, it won't spoil your enjoyment. If you've worn out your midland metal, hard rock and proto-psych rock vinyl and you need something new then this will totally sort you out.
